  4. My Great Aunt "Miss Dawnette" (Ida May Aylett 1899-1993) was an entertainer all her life, she bequethed the banner to the Theatre. I have a black and white photo of it at a carnival. She had no children, her soulmate Charles Dhu died a young man in the 30's she remained single after his death, the circus and vaudeville scene became her life.
